Patentability

Say a pill currently available to the public has 10 different chemicals in it. It is not currently patented. If a company were to take those chemicals and put them into a beverage, would it be novel enough to be patentable? Would the pill be prior art that would prevent a patent?

My guess is that Mr. Auslander was answering your former question, not the latter.  I'd have to say that I agree with him.
 
The challenge here is that there's a significant body of patent law specific to chemical inventions and I'm not familiar with that body of law.  For example, what aspect of a claim specifies or doesn't specify whether the chemical components can be in an ionized solution (beverage) or a mixture (pill).  Does it make a difference?  I don't know.  
 
That's one of the reasons I say that a chemistry-based practice is a specialty all its own within the specialty of a patent practice.
 
Regards.
